Tell them a silly pun joke
Puns can be a great way to get your friend giggling. You can find them in joke books, on cards or just try and make up some of your own. Here’s some examples to get you started.

Take the mick out of yourself
Great ways to make someone laugh is to make fun of yourself. This doesn’t have to be in a way where you’re nasty to yourself, just in a silly way.
One example could be “I’ve really been getting into shape lately. I mean round is a shape, right?”
Another could be: “This shirt is so colorful, you can probably see it from space.”

Send them a funny gift or card
Sending the gift of laughter is great way to show your friend you care and give them a giggle at the same time. You can do this in the form of a card if you’re working on a budget or splurge out a bit and buy them something they can use daily like a mug or coaster.

Play a harmless prank
Before doing this, make sure the friend you are pulling it on has a good sense of humour. Keep it light and friendly, don’t take it too far.
Here’s a couple of examples:
Googly eyes are always a laugh, why not add some to the fruit in your friends house.
Useless soap – add a thin layer of clear nail polish to a bar or soap and you’ve instantly made it useless!

Send a funny meme
Everyone loves a silly meme. You can find them all over Google and on blog posts such as these ones.
Try and pick one that suits your friend, maybe it’s in response to a text they’ve already sent you, maybe it’s in a birthday message.
